Images of the San Juans
Revised

Step back in time and see how prospectors, miners, merchants, investors, and families settled the mining towns in the gold and silver-rich San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. Telluride, Ouray, and Silverton are well portrayed as well as many of the smaller towns that are now just crumbling piles of stone and lumber. Featuring more than 250 rare and historical photographs from the private collection of Ruth and Marvin Gregory, this book allows readers to venture into the mines, ride the railroads, and share the catastrophes and celebrations of yesterday’s West. Including well-researched and illuminating narratives, Images of the San Juans--Revised, is the true life story of an awe-inspiring area and its inhabitants and an ever-enduring pioneer spirit.

P. David Smith has also added lengthy captions explaining and pointing out the particulars of each photograph. This book will really give you an idea of the way it was over 100 years ago in the San Juans.

P. David Smith is the author or co-author of eight other books on San Juan and Ute Indian history.
